The Athenian Oath 

We will never bring disgrace to this our town, by 
any act of dishonesty or cowardice, nor ever 
desert our suffering comrades in the ranks; we 
will fight for the ideals and sacred things of the 
town, both alone and with many; we will revere 
and obey the town's laws and do our best to 
incite a like respect in those above us who are 
prone to annul or set them at naught; we will 
strive unceasingly to quicken the public's sense 
of civic duty, thus in all these ways we will 
transmit this town not only less, but greater and 
more beautiful than it was transmitted to us. 



Dedication 

This report is dedicated to the remembrance of Sophia Smith, one of Hatfield's most famous citizens. On October 7, 
2000, Sophia was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, New York along with 18 other 
exemplary American women. Sophia's legacy joined those of an elite group of great American women in the Hall 
whose mission is ". . .to honor in perpetuity these women, citizens of the United States of America, whose 
contributions to the arts, athletics, business, education, government, the humanities, philanthropy and science, have 
been of the greatest value for the development of the country." 

The excerpt below is from the Hall of Fame's Induction Ceremony & Honors Weekend Program, October 6-7, 2000. 
May the example and story of Sophia Smith continue to inspire other daughters and sons of Hatfield by reminding 
them of the difference one person can make not only locally, not only nationally, but also globally. 




Sophia Smith 
1796 - 1870 



SOPHIA SMITH, born in Hatfield, Massachusetts in 1796, was one of seven children of a prosperous and frugal 
New England farmer. As a young girl, Sophia strove to achieve the type of education generally closed to women in 
the early nineteenth century. She attended a local school and, for one term, an academy in Hartford, Connecticut. She 
then continued her education informally, reading widely throughout her life. Deaf by the age of forty, Sophia spent 
most of her time at home and involved with her church. By 1861, at the age of sixty-five, Sophia was the last of her 
immediate family. With careful management and wise investments, her brothers and uncles had increased the family 
wealth to a small fortune. Determined to do something meaningful with her money, Sophia consulted her pastor and 
others. Eventually, she decided to endow a women's college, to be located in Northampton, Massachusetts. The 
college, she hoped, would provide the highest quality undergraduate education for young women-equal to that 
provided at the time to young men-thus enabling women to develop their intellects and talents and to participate 
effectively and fully in all areas of American society. Upon her death in 1870, Sophia's bequest of nearly $400,000 
became the foundation for the establishment of Smith College, which was chartered in 1871 and then opened its doors 
in 1875 with 14 students. Since its beginning, Smith College has been one of the most preeminent women's colleges, 
and one of the nation's best liberal arts colleges. Today, Smith enrolls approximately 2,500 students from throughout 
the country and the world. Its endowment has grown to $800 million, with scholarships and financial aid especially 
earmarked for women students beyond a traditional college age and those who might not otherwise be able to afford a 
Smith College education. Since its humble beginning in 1871, more than 60,000 women, from around the world, have 
attended Smith College. They have gone on to serve as leaders in their communities and their nations. Sophia Smith 
truly achieved her goal: to establish an institution of higher education for women that would impart an education by 
which women could "incalculably" enlarge "their power for good" by increasing their role in society and the economy 
and working to reform "the evils of society... as teachers, as writers, as mothers, (and) as members of society." 



In Memoriam 




HENRY P. BETSOLD 



On April 28, 2000, Hatfield lost one of its lifelong residents and one who amassed an impressive record of 
uncompromising dedication to the Town of Hatfield, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the Nation. 

A graduate of Smith Academy, Henry P. Betsold's most formative experience came during World War II 
when he served with the U.S. Navy. He came back from that war dedicated to improving his community. 
While he worked for the U.S. Postal Service, eventually retiring as postmaster in Hatfield in the mid-1980s, 
it is his volunteer efforts that truly distinguish his life here in Hatfield. He helped organize the Hatfield 
Youth League, now, the Hatfield Recreation Commission, and had served as president. He also served as 
president and vice president of the Frontier Youth League. From 1966 to his death, he held the position of 
Elector under the Will of Oliver Smith, which was the will that created Smith Charities, and helped countless 
people receive benefits available under that organization. He also served the Town on the Council on Aging, 
the Historical Society, and the Industrial Development Commission. 

His involvement in veterans' affairs included past commander of the Hatfield American Legion post, 
delegate to several conventions, chaplain for the Franklin-Hampshire District II of the American Legion, and 
appointment to several Legion committees at the national level. He received the Legion's Outstanding 
Native Born Citizenship Award of the Americanism Committee in 1991 and received several other awards 
for over 40 years of service in veterans' affairs. In 1951, he started and ran the pitch league at the Hatfield 
Legion post that became an important Monday night social gathering for both veterans and non- veterans 
through the years. The league continues to this day and is now named in his honor. 

A communicant of St. Joseph's church here in Hatfield, he served in several capacities in its Holy Name 
Society, including president. He was installed as a special minister in 1981 and also received several awards 
from the Diocese of Springfield including a 40-year pin for the Catholic Stewardship campaigns. He was 
also active in the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine. 

Henry will also be remembered as an enthusiastic supporter of Smith Academy athletics and could be 
regularly seen at sporting events with a small sign that simply said "Go Falcons" under which he wrote 
"Uncle Heinie"~the name that so many in the community affectionately knew him by. His community spirit 
was further defined by his special car license plate that read "HATFLD" and was a visible sign to everyone 
how strongly he felt about Hatfield. 

Throughout his life, Henry Betsold contributed countless hours to his church, to our veterans, to the needs of 
our youth, and the needs of our elderly. The Town of Hatfield is a much better place because of him and he 
will always hold a special place in the Town's history. 



BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

This year's Town Report is dedicated to Sophia Smith. On October 7, 2000, Sophia Smith, 1796-1870, a lifelong 
residence of Hatfield, was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, New York. Although 
recognized for her endowment that created Smith College, Sophia is well remembered in Hatfield for her additional 
endowment that created Smith Academy. The national recognition she received through the Hall of Fame ceremonies 
reflects the greatest credit upon herself and the Town of Hatfield. We encourage all residents to visit the Hall of Fame 
to see how the memory of our Sophia is now enshrined with the legacies of some of the greatest women in American 
history. 

This report is also in memory of Henry Betsold who passed away on April 28, 2000. To many known as Uncle Heine, 
to some as Mr. Hatfield, Henry was one of our foremost citizens and one who dearly loved Hatfield. We will fondly 
remember him because of his many years as our postmaster, his leadership in the American Legion, and his 
unwavering support of Hatfield athletic programs and Hatfield youth. Even after his death, his impact was still being 
felt when the Smith Vocational School Trustees approved his initiative to have that school's library named the 
"Hatfield Room" in honor of their founder's, Oliver Smith, hometown. Henry was an amazing man and we shall not 
see his like again. 

In May, 2000, we welcomed Diana Higgins to the Board of Selectmen. Diana replaced E. Lary Grossman and we 
would like to thank Larry for all his hard work while on the Board. 

A brief summary of some of the specific accomplishments of the Board during calendar year 2000 is provided below: 

-Finished negotiations and signed a three year contract with Unit A of Teamsters General Union Local No. 404 
(laborers within our DPW). 

-Successfully worked with House Majority Leader Bill Nagle, Senate Assistant Majority Leader Stan 
Rosenberg, and Governor Paul Cellucci and received $975,000 special state funding needed to complete the 
Bridge/Gore Sewer and Drainage Project. Our sincere appreciation goes out to these state officials and especially to all 
of the former town officials who devoted so much time and effort on this project. 

-Continued negotiations with the Regional Library for renewal of the lease of the building they rent from the 
Town (across from Town Hall.) 

-Awarded a contract for a Wage and Classification Study. 

-Negotiated and signed an agreement with the City of Northampton for our veterans to use their full-time 
Veterans' Agent. 

-Worked with legislators to find sources of funding for installing sewers along Hatfield portion of 5&10. They 
arranged for Mass Development to further study the project and help locate fund sources. 

-Approved and directed the installation of town-wide metering of water. 

-Signed contract with Pioneer Valley Planning Commission for a Source Water Protection Study funded by a 
$30,000 state grant. 

-Awarded $7,500 contract for the study of conditions and repairs needed for six town buildings. 

-Appointed five citizens to the first-ever Personnel Board. 

-Worked closely with the Breor and Smith Academy School Building Committees in planning, scheduling, and 
conducting two special town meetings. 



We were also proud to take part in the dedication ceremony for the new Veterans' Memorial plaque in front of the 
Town Hall on Veterans Day November 11, 2000. State Senate Assistant Majority Leader Stan Rosenberg joined this 
Board, the Veterans' Commemorative Committee, and the Hatfield Post 344 of the American Legion in unveiling 
plaques recognizing those from Hatfield who served during the Korean War and Vietnam Wars. We offer special 
recognition to resident Bob Cutter for his persistence and dedication in making these newest memorial tributes a 
reality. We hope these plaques will be a continual reminder to all succeeding generations of those from Hatfield who 
answered their country's call during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. 

The year 2000 was indeed a year to remember. The year's major issue was what should be done to correct the 
deficiencies in the School Department's infrastructure. The debate was often heated throughout the two special town 
meetings and no one side had all the right answers to a very complex problem. The important thing to us was that 
everyone was given their right to speak and vote their mind on this substantial and important investment of taxpayer 
money — and that this was certainly in the best tradition of Town Meeting. 

Lastly, let us continue to remember and honor the legacy of Hatfield residents like Sophia Smith and Henry Betsold, 
all of the Korean and Vietnam War Veterans, and so many others, and use their examples to motivate us to continue to 
improve our community, our home, our Hatfield.

Board of Assessors 



The town has completed another update of values for this fiscal year as required by Massachusetts Law. 
A building lot that sold in 1998 for $50,000 is selling for $60,000 - $70,000 in 1999 and 2000. Single family 
homes are selling at much higher prices due to a limited market and Hatfield seems to be a very desirable 
location. We are seeing that calendar year 2000 sales support the current values. Overall, the total residential 
value for the town increased 10%. 

Information on the function of the Assessors' Office was put in booklet form and mass mailed to every 
property in town. Feedback has been very positive. Many property owners liked the booklet and found it very 
helpful as a reference tool. Many do not realize that it is the assessors primary function to put values on all real 
estate in the town and to update those values every three years. The town has approximately 2,100 parcels on a 
database that must be updated every year for ownership and new construction. This office receives 
approximately 90 to 140 deed transfers each year which can affect 200 or more parcels. The booklet explains 
terms such as abatements and exemptions. These terms tend to be confused by property owners when it comes 
time for filing. Hopefully with the aid of the booklet, abatements and exemptions will have clearer meanings. 
Booklets are available at the assessors' office if anyone did not receive one or would like another copy. 

The office is preparing for another update of values occurring in calendar year 2003 (for fiscal year 
2004). Every property in town must have the property record card information verified. This means every 
house and business must be visited to check interior and exterior information and remeasure the structure to 
verify the square footage. The work is being done by the Administrative Assistant Assessor, JoAnn Greenleaf 
who has already completed 40% of the town. Depending on the size of the dwelling, the process takes 15-40 
minutes. The need to continually update the property record card is obvious. When it comes time to do an 
analysis of the sales in order to determine the affect on value, the need for good data is clear. If the data is 
correct, the result will be values that can be justified. 

We are looking at upgrading our assessing software as our current system is a DOS based system that is 
no longer being supported by the vendor. The newer systems are Windows based which is of great benefit. 
Since, parcel information (assessors' maps) are in a GIS format, the maps can be incorporated with the parcel 
database. We can take pictures of all the buildings in town with a digital camera and add it to the database. 
This means that when a property record card is viewed on the computer, a person can see the assessment data, a 
picture of the house and the mapping parcel all at once. This information can be a great tool for many 
departments such as the tax collector, building commissioner and DPW director. 

The assessors' office is open Monday through Friday 8:00 - 12:00 and 12:30 - 4:30, and on Wednesday 
evenings from 6:00 to 7:00 P.M. Board meetings are held twice per month on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 
P.M. Date and time postings can be found on the Town Hall Bulletin Board and in the Daily Hampshire 
Gazette. We encourage property owners to review their property information. Anyone wishing to meet with 
the board may schedule a time by visiting the office or calling 247-0322. 

We want to thank everyone for their cooperation and assistance. As always, we welcome your input as 
to how we may better serve you and our town.

CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

To the Residents of Hatfield: 

During 2000, the Conservation Commission held 10 public meetings, including 9 public hearings responding to 13 
applications for activities in or near wetlands. These applications dealt with the construction of nine single family homes, 
reconstruction of a commercial building and parking area on West Street, utility construction, and monopole 
modifications. All of the applications were approved, but special conditions or modifications were required to protect the 
wetland resources of Hatfield. Approximately 20 additional actions were reviewed for various parties and it was 
determined that wetlands resources regulated by the Commission were not in immediate proximity and/or that no permit 
was required. 

The Commission also responded to several enforcement situations regarding fill in wetlands or floodplain and 
unauthorized activities within wetlands and buffer zones. Five enforcement orders were issued. Property owners agreed 
to comply with wetland regulations and no fines were issued. 

The Commission considered two requests for Chapter 61 A releases and the Commission elected to not recommend 
acquisition of these parcels to the Board of Selectmen. 

The Commission additionally provided technical support to several other Town Boards. The Commission was active 
during 2000 on the Town's Master Plan Committee and in the Mill River Stream Team project within the Towns of 
Hatfield, Whately, Deerfield, and Conway. The Commission and Pioneer Valley Planning Commission began work on a 
DEP grant program to develop a comprehensive watershed plan for the Hatfield drinking water reservoir. This work is 
continuing in the year 2001. 

The wetland and floodplain resources in Hatfield are extensive and generally of extremely high quality. These areas are 
critical to flood control, drinking water supply, surface water quality, and wildlife and aquatic habitat. The Commission 
wishes to thank the citizens of Hatfield for their support during the year in the acceptance of the wetland bylaws and in 
compliance with the regulations of the Wetlands Protection Act. The Town residents and businesses are encouraged to 
contact the Commission if they have any questions regarding their existing or proposed actions in proximity to wetland 
resource areas. 

The Commission wishes to thank Mr. Stanley Sliwoski, who resigned from the board, for his years of dedicated service to 
the Conservation Commission. Mr. Walter Thayer is welcomed as a new member to the Commission.

SCHOOL COMMITTEE AND THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

Nature and Extent of the Report 

The period of time covered by this report is from January 1, 2000 to December 21, 2000. 

School Committee 

Mark Vachula was elected chairman in May. Mrs. Elizabeth Lafond and Mr. Brian Moriarty were elected for 
three-year terms. Other members are Mrs. Abigail Roberts and Mr. Stanley Pitchko. 

The School Committee continued to hold quarterly instead of monthly meetings, starting September 1998. 
Members of the community are urged to attend these meetings as the School Committee looks forward to receiving 
input and relies on all points of view in the formulation of their decisions. 

The goal of the School Committee is and always has been to oversee the school system and provide the best 
possible education while staying within the resources available. 

The community is fortunate that such high quality people serve on the School Committee. It takes a great deal 
of time and dedication to handle the complex and difficult challenges with which they are faced. The Committee is to 
be congratulated for the fine job it did during the last year. 

Superintendent 

A Superintendent must always realize that the educational needs of the students are first and foremost. A team 
effort by the entire staff is needed to accomplish this end. 

My goals for the 2000 - 2001 school year are: 

1 . Align the Hatfield Curriculum with the State Frameworks. 

2. Build a new Breor Elementary School; renovate HVAC system, create instructional and administrative 
spaces and add an auditorium and Biology lab to Smith Academy. 

3. Lead the process of taking technology to the next level. 

4. Increase my own technology skills. 

5. Create a Virtual High School at Smith Academy (2 years). 

The Town appropriated $8,809,000 to build a new Breor Elementary School. The old building will be demolished. 
A request for funds to add an auditorium, biology lab and upgrade the electrical and ventilation system at Smith 
Academy was not approved. 

Closing Comments 

In my judgment Hatfield is a model small school system. Teachers place students at the top of their own 
priority list. They have gone well beyond their traditional role of teachers and have become mentors, counselors 
and friends. Students on the other hand have responded to this personalized education by applying themselves and 
showing the utmost respect for their peers and their teachers. 

As superintendent of the Hatfield Schools, I cannot think of a better environment in which to work, learn and 
grow. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Thomas M. Cimino, Ed.D. 
Superintendent of Schools

Last year, we reported that we would be approaching Town Meeting with a request to purchase and equip a new 
Engine. The request was approved and the Engine was ordered and due to arrive, hopefully by the end of March 2001. I 
would like to thank the committee, who worked long and hard in drawing up the specifications for the new Engine. The 
committee consisted of Diana Higgins, Bob Donaldson, Jim Szynal, Captain Jonathan Bardwell and interim Chief 
William Belden. The committee will continue to meet until the Town accepts the Engine. 

It was also approved at Town Meeting last year to add a fulltime person to our payroll. This person would be 
working for both the Fire Department and Hatfield Ambulance. This position should be filled early March 200 1 and will 
help alleviate some of the pressure on the current personnel by being available during the day, doing inspections, checking 
equipment, etc. and to respond to any emergency calls. 

We are still looking for interested citizens to expand our roster of personnel. We continue to drill on Thursday 
evenings and can provide anyone interested the skills to become a firefighter. This can be a challenging task but one that 
has many rewards to it, such as helping a neighbor or friend in need. If you think you could help is, please feel free to 
contact any member of the department or stop down on any Thursday and see first hand how you could be a valuable 
member of this organization. 

We would like to remind Townspeople, that if they should need an inspection done that you should call the Town 
Hall and schedule an appointment, which are usually done on Thursdays. Open burning permits are also issued at the 
Town Hall Monday thru Friday during regular business hours and at the Fire Station from 8AM - 10AM on weekends and 
Holidays. 

I would like to thank all of the officers and firefighters for their efforts in providing a great service to you, the 
citizens of Hatfield. These individuals make many sacrifices in committing to this job and Ihey have been a great team to 
work with in the past year and I look forward to that continuing this year. 

I would like to thank all of the various boards and departments for their assistance to the Fire Department over the 
past year. I personally thank Teresa and Ruth, the town hall secretaries, for their help and guidance. Very importantly, I 
would like to thank the citizens of Hatfield for their support of the department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William A. Belden, Interim Fire Chief

Cemetery Commission 



To the Citizens of Hatfield: 



The Cemetery Commission would like to thank the townspeople for the support at the Annual Town Meeting for 
funds to do some necessary repairs after many years of neglect. When people purchase lost, they assume that they will be 
kept up as the years pass by. Well we are undertaking that duty now. There are five town cemetery locations. These 
need to be mapped properly. Hopefully, with the help of the school system and possibly the boy scouts, this will be 
accomplished over the next two years. The idea is to measure, map, and plot each cemetery with details onto a computer 
disk so that one would be available in the town library and another in the Town Hall. This will take a variety of people 
some time to complete but will be irreplaceable when done. Anyone wishing to help, please contact us, it would be most 
appreciated. 

The other plan that we hope to hear of is that we have asked the Hampshire County Jail for some assistance this 
summer to unearth many flat stones that have been grown over by the grass and clippings over the years. Also, for them 
to re-set the old headstones that are falling over. If we can get these before they break, that will minimize the future cost 
of repair. 

We do ask for your help during the year to keep plots in an orderly fashion. We do not have a maintenance 
person to periodically clean up flowers or memorials and do not think that our taxes need to afford that. The town 
Highway dept. has placed barrels in the areas for your use and periodically empties them. We thank them for that. 

From time to time, we are asked how to purchase plots, well all that is needed to do is to visit the Town Hall and 
see the map that is available. Currently, the cost for a plot is $300.oo each. Many people wait until there is a death in the 
family and look upon this exercise with much sadness. It doesn't have to be that way. Many families choose to search 
out a family plot together so the decision is done with a certain level of pride and family planning. If any assistance is 
needed, please contact us for any unanswered questions. 

We thank you for your confidence in our efforts. 

Sincerely, 

Joe Lavallee, Chairman 
A Cory Bardwell, Member 
Jonathan Bardwell, Member

Department of Public Works 
Director 



Dear Residents: 



I am pleased to report to you on the work of the DPW last year and what we hope to do this year. Last 
year we accomplished the following: 

1 . The reclamation and paving of approximately one and a half miles of Chestnut Street, beginning at 
the railroad tracks and ending at School Street. 

2. The reclamation and paving of approximately 1 500 feet of Main Street where the new sewer main 
was installed. 

3. The start of a Meter Installation Program. Late last year, we installed 50 water meters on services 
that were previously unmetered. The installations were done on Bridge Street, Gore Avenue, 
Plantation Road, Primrose Path, and Pleasantview Drive. I again wish to thank these residents for 
their patience while we worked the initial kinks out of this program. 

4. The installation of approximately 120 feet of drainage pipe at Prospect Street to alleviate a 
recurring drainage problem. The Town crew did this work. 

5. The installation of fuel tanks and pumps at the Highway Garage. Since we can now buy our 
gasoline from the supplier who was awarded the state bid, we will save about 30 cents on each 
gallon of gasoline we buy. 

This year my goals for the DPW are the following: 

1. The start of construction of the drainage and road improvements at Bridge Street and Gore 
Avenue. This work will be paid for from the $975,000 earmark that was approved last year. 

2. The reclamation and paving of Prospect Street, from Elm Street to the Mill River Bridge. 

3. The continuation of the Meter Installation Program. 

4. The start of the rehabilitation of sewers at Colonial Acres to alleviate the infiltration / inflow 
problem. 

5. The continued pursuit of funding assistance to provide sewer service to a portion of West Street. 

6. The installation of about 1200 feet of drainage pipe at North Hatfield Road. This work will be 
done by the Town crew. After this work is done, North Hatfield Road will be reclaimed and paved 
from C & S to Straits Road. 

I would like to thank Bill Young, Frank Motyka, Jim Szynal, Ed Wrobiewski, Brian McGrath, Sonny 
Wendlowski, Jim Lavallee, Jim Klepacki, Ed Kempisty, Bill Podmayer, and the Transfer Station subs for 
their efforts this past year. I would also like to thank the Board of Selectmen and everyone at Town Hall 
for their support. Finally, I would like to thank the residents of Hatfield for allowing me the privilege of 
serving as your DPW Director. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Jim Reidy 
DPW Director

Highway Division 

This has been another busy year for the Highway Department. We continued our 
roadside trimming with the completion of King Street, School Street, Dwight Street, Linseed 
Road, Molloy Avenue, and Brook Hollow. This will continue to be an ongoing project. 

We also have replaced or repaired culverts on Bridge Street, Chestnut Street, Old Stage 
Road, and Prospect Street. Ledge was blasted and removed on Mountain Road, which now 
enables two cars to meet without one having to pull off so the other can get by. The paving on 
Main Street was completed and reclaiming and paving of Chestnut Street was also done. 

In the coming year we plan to install catch basins and drainage pipe on the south end of 
North Hatfield Road. When completed we will reclaim and pave from C & S to the intersection 
of Straits Road and on Prospect Street from the bridge to Elm Street. 

I would like to thank the taxpayers of Hatfield for understanding our need for quality 
equipment. The vote to purchase a backhoe at last years Annual Town Meeting was very much 
appreciated and goes a long way to enable us to do a better job for you. I would also like to thank 
all members of the DPW and the staff at the town hall for making my job easier. I especially 
want to thank Sonny Wendlowski, Jim Klepacki, Jim Lavallee and Jim Szynal for their continued 
dedication. 



Respectfully, 

Bill Young 

Highway Superintendent 



Tree Division 

The disease, which has hit many of the maple trees in town, has made it a very active 
year. Maple trees of all ages and sizes are dying. This made it necessary for a larger number of 
tree removals than normal. I believe the majority of the problem has been taken care of and in the 
future the need for removals will be greatly reduced. Trimming is always the first option. 

We completed the removal of thirty-four dead or diseased trees. Twenty-two stumps 
were ground up and twenty-six trees were trimmed. There are another fifteen stumps to be 
removed in the coming year. 

In our efforts to replace the trees removed, we had a spring and fall planting again this 
year. Seven trees were planted in the spring and twelve in the fall. Anyone with questions or 
concerns about trees can call me at 247-5646 or stop in at 10 Straits Road. 



Respectfully, 
Bill Young 
Tree Warden

Water Division 



Last year The Hatfield Water Department supplied 138,3 19,600 gallons of water to the town. The 
Running Gutter Reservoir supplied 99,234,000 gallons with an additional 22,551,500 gallons from The 
West Hatfield Well and 16,533,380 gallons from The Omasta Well. 

The Water Filtration Facility is in its fourth year of operation and continues to provide an 
excellent water quality. 

A Water Meter Installation Program was initiated this year and will be ongoing, eventually 
metering the entire town. Fifty-one meters have been installed under this program and an additional 33 
were installed at new construction and upon residents request. Metering promotes conservation and a 
more equitable billing of water users. 

The Town has engaged The Pioneer Valley Planning Commission in developing a Source Water 
Protection Plan for The Running Gutter Reservoir. This project will be on going in 2001 and coordinated 
with The Hatfield Master Plan. 

As mandated by EPA, a Consumer Confidence Report was prepared for Town residents and a 
copy of this report can be obtained at the Town Hall. 

Water is a valuable resource and we thank the townspeople for their conservation efforts. 

Respectively Submitted, 
Frank Motyka 
Water Superintendent 



Wastewater Division 

With the recent completion of the two sewer extensions, an additional 74 households have been 
added to the wastewater collection system. As more of the town becomes connected, the flows to the 
Wastewater Treatment Facility are increasing. 

To insure that the facility will have the capacity to meet the Town's needs a study has been in 
place to identify sources of ground and surface water entering the collection system. An article was voted 
at Annual Town Meeting to fund removal of a portion of these sources and work will proceed in 2001 to 
accomplish this goal. 

The Wastewater Treatment Facility has been operating for fourteen years and continues to meet 
the increasing needs of Hatfield. During the past year the treatment facility processed 87,800,000 gallons 
of sewerage and 153,450 gallons of septage. Two hundred and thirty tons of sludge were generated and 
disposed at The Northampton Landfill. 

Again we would like to thank The DPW Departments, Town Hall staff, and Town boards for their 
continued support. 

Respectively Submitted, 
Frank Motyka 
Wastewater Superintendent

Vehicle Maintenance Division 

The Vehicle Maintenance Division has been busy over the last year. Much of my time was spent repairing Highway 
Division vehicles and equipment such as the street sweeper, road grader, and loader. I also rebuilt the engine and 
painted a 1967 Massey Ferguson tractor that performs a lot of mowing during the summer months. I have also been 
busy performing repairs and regular maintenance to all of the other Towns vehicles. 

In the upcoming year I have many projects planned, first of which is to rebuild and paint a Highway Division 
sander. I also have plans to sandblast and paint all of the Highway Division plows and the running boards on two of 
the Town's fire trucks. During the summer months I like to check our all of the School Department vehicles and make 
sure they are clean, safe and ready for the upcoming school year. In the coming summer months I will have some 
minor body work and painting done to the Waste Water Division truck and this summer I plan to sandblast and paint 
one of the Highway Division dump trucks. These are just a few of the many projects that are planned for the coming 
fiscal year. 

Lastly, I would like to thank the Board of Selectmen, D.P.W. Director James Reidy, Highway Superintendent 
Bill Young and all of the other Town employees for all their support and cooperation over the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
James M. Szynal, Jr. 
Vehicle Maintenance Supt.

Property & Space Utilization Committee 

To the Residents of Hatfield: 

Last year, when we finalized our space needs report and submitted it to the Board of Selectmen, 
we were then charged with the task of searching for a consultant. When Edward Kaiser joined our 
committee, and when Mark Gelotte, local architect spoke with our committee, the decision to ask for 
money to hire a consultant was cemented. 

October 1999 we met again with the selectmen and then with the Finance Board on January 6 th . 
Two members of the Selectboard were present as well. We requested the sum of $7,500 to hire an 
architect who would do a walk-through in the municipal buildings and guide us in defining clear 
objectives and making sound recommendations how best to use the town buildings and yet fill the needs 
of town personnel for space. Our request was granted. 

Town Administrator, Bill Szych joined our committee on February 24. He was appointed by the 
Selectmen to serve as the fifth member of our committee. 

Five architectural firms submitted resumes, and by March 29 we had reviewed each and selected 
Architects, Inc. of Northampton to work with us. The consultant from that firm is Don Hafner. We first 
met him on August 2 nd , and we have been working with him since. 

Mr. Hafner has us thinking on three levels: Level I - Goals to become code compliant, Level II - 
Building Improvements, Level III - Building Maintenance. Our over-all goal is to plan ahead and not to 
have to play catch-up on building repairs and replacements. 

We have mainly focused on Memorial Town Hall and the Dickinson Memorial Hall while 
keeping the larger scheme of things for all of the six town buildings in mind. 

By drawing blue prints, Mr. Hafner has encouraged us to stretch our thinking to all possibilities. 
Mr. Szych has kept in our minds placing as many departments as possible under one roof. These 
sometimes divergent views keep us exploring. 

Mr. Sadowski has taken Mr. Hafner on tours of the six town properties. From seeing the 
buildings, Mr. Hafner added more suggestions for repairs and improvements to our initial list. He has 
given us a few educated estimates of the cost of some of the work to be done. Mr. Hafner has brought in 
structural, mechanical and electrical engineers to look at the properties. 

As of the end of the year 2000, we have examined many solutions to our space problems, and are 
looking forward to submitting a full report with recommendations before long.

Council on Aging 



To the Residents of Hatfield; 



We would like to thank the community for the support we received last year for our Transportation Program. It has 
enabled us to provide the necessary services to those without transportation to the appointments they have. We would 
also like to express our sincere appreciation to the following, the Hatfield Book Club; Hatfield Lions Club, for their 
contribution to our Holiday Party; Smith Academy for the computers for our Senior Center; the Smith Academy 
service Club & Honor Society, for their assistance with our monthly food distribution and Senior Dinner; Police Chief 
David Hurley and Sgt. Tom Osley for their assistance and support of the TRIAD Program; Frank Bonk, for the 
wonderful book case and bulletin boards he donated his time to make for our Center, and the great job he does keeping 
our facilities so clean. Jim Szynal, for keeping our vans running smoothly; the Selectmen, Bill Szych, other Town 
Departments, and also the Town Hall staff for all of their support and assistance throughout the year. We would also 
like to thank all the individuals who made donations to our department, whether in memory of loved ones, medical 
equipment or books and magazines. Last but not least, we would like to thank our many volunteers, many of whom 
are residents of Hatfield, over 60, some students, some working and donating precious time to our many programs and 
activities. We cannot express the deep appreciation we have to these dedicated people for their skills, knowledge, 
time and assistance they have given this past year. The volunteers have donated approximately 4798 hours of service 
to our community. These services would have cost $36748.00 if we were to pay for them. We applaud them and 
honor them at our yearly Volunteer Recognition each Spring. 

The Council on Aging consists of 5 Board Members. Due to illness, Laura Schilling regretfully had to resign her 
position on the Board. We also lost a longtime member. Henry Betsold served as Historian for the Council on Aging 
for 1 5 years. He will always be remembered for his dedication to the Council on Aging, and the service he provided to 
others who needed assistance. We have two new members, Tony Gillespie and Barbara Hurley to welcome to our 
Board. Our Staff, Jane Betsold, COA Director; Barbara Goll, our Dining Center Director; COA Van Drivers; Meals 
on Wheels Drivers; June May, our Volunteer Coordinator/Assistant; and our many volunteers. The Council on Aging 
and Senior Center are located downstairs in the Town Hall and are open Monday through Friday. We may be reached 
at 247-9003, and if there is no answer, please leave- a message on the machine. Our meetings are held monthly at the 
Senior Center and dates and times are posted outside the Town Clerk's office. We encourage all elders to attend these 
meetings and welcome any comments, concerns, or suggestions concerning the Council on Aging or Nutrition 
programs. We attend local and regional meetings with other agencies to update our information and resources and 
expand on new programs available to us. 

We have applied for and received grants from Highland Valley Elder Services, to fund our Nutrition Program, and our 
Newsletter. Also, from The Executive Office of Elder Affairs to provide a Program Coordinator/Office Assistant, 
Volunteer Recognition, and to establish new programs. We also received funding from an Incentive Grant from Elder 
Affairs to purchase a new computer for our office. The Hatfield Book Club was generous in providing us with 
funding to purchase new curtains for our kitchen and misc. items needed for the kitchen, which was finally completed 
this past year. It looks great! ! 

Our Newsletter is mailed to each town resident over 60 and contains the activities and programs sponsored by the 
Council on Aging and other agencies. Copies are available at the Senior Center. Due to cuts in our funding from 
Highland Valley we were unable to publish a couple of newsletters this past year. We hope to get back on track again 
this year. We have available free flyers and pamphlets outside the Senior Center concerning various topics. We also 
have a variety of videotapes available through the TRIAD Program on safety issues, which we lend out. We have a 
beautiful new bookcase, built by Frank Bonk, to display our large selection of books people have donated to our 
Center. Anyone wishing to borrow a book or would like to donate books, please stop by the Senior Center. All Senior 
activities, sign up sheets, and programs are displayed on the bulletin board, located in the Senior Center.

PROGRAMS; 

TRANSPORTATION: Our Transportation Program is running very well thanks to the support of the community. 
We have been able to keep up with the needed trips, however we do find at times we cannot accommodate everyone. 
We must remind everyone that we have a very busy schedule and need to have your appointments called in to us as 
soon as possible. Transportation with the COA van is available to all persons residing in Hatfield, age 60 or older, 
with priority given to those without any transportation. Appointments can be made by calling the COA office. Our 
van drivers, Marion Lapienski, Nancy Noyes, John Rankin, and Ethel Podmayer provided 6936 trips for weekly 
medical appointments, lunch pick up and return, grocery shopping, mall shopping, banking, hair appointments, adult 
daycare, and misc. trips for 2000. We thank them for their dedication and patience and the assistance they provide our 
passengers. Also, we would like to thank a long time van driver, William Podmayer, for the many years of service to 
the Council on Aging. He retired this past year and we wish him well. 

NUTRITION PROGRAM: Funded by Highland Valley Elder Services, our hot lunch program is available 
Monday through Friday (no Holidays), at 12:00 noon at the Senior Center in Town Hall for all persons over 60 years 
of age. Reservations should be made at least 24 hours in advance, by calling the Dining Center Director, Barbara 
Goll at 247-0480, Monday through Friday from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Our Meals on Wheels Drivers, Robert Tefft 
and Kathy Tefft are very dedicated to the program, which is extremely important to persons living alone. Many times 
they are the only people having daily contact with Home Delivered Meals Participants. Persons interested in Home 
Delivered meals should contact Barbara Goll. Monthly menus are available at the Center. The Nutrition Program is 
not only important nutritionally, but also serves as a wonderful social activity each day. For one hour each day you 
can come to the Center, have a hot lunch, visit with a group of wonderful people, and you don't have to wash dishes! 
Volunteers and Drivers served and delivered over 12,000 congregate and home delivered meals last year. 

OTHER PROGRAMS: We have coordinated and organized many health clinics, programs, and speakers which 
consisted of the following: the Annual Flu Clinic was available to all persons over 60, at risk residents, and public 
safety personnel. Cindy Sadowski volunteered her services again to administer the vaccine, which was provided by the 
Mass. Department of Public Health; Monthly Blood Pressure Screenings, provided by volunteer nurses are held the 2 nd 
Monday of each month. The Fuel Assistance Program, sponsored by the Franklin Community Action Corp.; Free Tax 
Assistance Program, sponsored by AARP; Monthly Food Surplus Distribution, sponsored by The Western Mass. Food 
Bank; Farmer's Market Program, sponsored by the Mass. Dept. of Agriculture; Misc. Health & Foot Screenings; the 
SHINE Program; Presidential Birthday Greetings for residents over 80; Medicare & Medicaid Speakers; the Senior 
Pharmacy Program, sponsored by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs; Medical & Nutrition Speakers; Assistance to 
elders for Tax Abatements; the TRIAD Program, involving Senior Citizens, Police Department, and the Council on 
Aging. A special THANKS to the S.A.L.T. Council members, Sgt. Thomas Osley, and Jane Betsold, who work so 
hard to keep our TRIAD Program a great success. Congratulations to the Hatfield TRIAD Program for receiving 
recognition from the Hampshire County TRIAD Steering Committee June 12, 2000 for their Outstanding Service, 
Innovative Programs, and Outreach to the Elders and Community of Hatfield. We coordinated a Computer Class for 
Seniors, funded by the Hatfield Police Department, in conjunction with Smith Academy and volunteer students, which 
enabled residents over 60 to learn the basics needed to operate a computer. We had a great response and hope to 
continue a program this year at our Center. Smith Academy donated some of their older computers to us for use at our 
Senior Center. The computers are working now and residents over 60 wishing to use them may do so by calling the 
office. We are looking for volunteers to provide basic instruction for those who do not know how to run them, so if 
anyone is knowledgeable and interested please contact the COA office. Our thanks for those who donated to our 
Medical Equipment & Loan Program. We have medical equipment available to loan free of charge at the COA office. 
Items donated by local residents help those who may need a cane, walker, wheelchair, tub seat, commode, or misc. 
items. Anyone wishing to donate any clean, usable items, please contact the office. Recreational Activities available 
were weekly bridge, weekly bingo games, evening bingo parties, holiday parties, mall shopping, movie trips, and 
motorcoach trips. Various intergenerational programs were held in cooperation with the local schools. 

The Council on Aging provides services to over 739 Hatfield residents age 60 and over. We continue to maintain our 
current programs and activities and look ahead to what might be needed in the future. Our goal is to provide the best 
quality of services to the community and to meet the needs of the growing population of residents to the best of our 
ability. Working with local and regional agencies, we succeed by identifying and developing community resources, 

66 



provide needed information, referral, and outreach on safety, health, nutrition and education. We are very fortunate to 
have a community to support us with the necessary services needed to maintain elders independent living at home and 
to provide a healthy, safe environment to enhance their quality of life. Do not wait until there is a need, explore your 
future, know what is available ahead of time and be prepared for whatever life may toss your way. We encourage the 
public to become involved in what we are doing and support ideas to provide for a better way of life.

Board of Health 

Dear Residents, 

The Board of Health has had a busy year enforcing State and Local Health Rules to the benefit of Hatfield Citizens. 

The Board continues to conduct on-site inspections of both new and failed septic systems to ensure adherence to state 
Title 5 regulations. The Septic Management Grant Program has been completed. The citizens of Hatfield had little 
interest in this program. 

West Nile Virus (WNV) Encephalitis, a rare disease caused by a virus, was first identified in the U.S. in 1999. It 
became a local topic in the summer of 2000. The virus grows in birds and is transmitted from bird to bird and from 
birds to humans by mosquitoes. Horses bitten by mosquito's carrying WNV can also become sick. People and horses 
cannot spread the disease without mosquitos. WNV may spread to Massachusetts as it was detected in NY, NJ, Conn. 
And Maryland. It will be necessary that Hatfield citizens protect themselves from mosquito bites. The risk of getting 
MNV encephalitis is highest from late July through Sept. The Board of Health will monitor the situation and inform 
citizens of the proper precautionary measures. We are in direct contact with the state for updates. For more 
information contact the Board of Health office at Memorial Town Hall. 

The Board of Health continues to monitor noise and air pollution from C & S. We have asked the Department of 
Environmental Protection to conduct a study of these complaints so we may act appropriately on behalf of the citizens. 

On a regular basis, the Board responds and investigates to complaints, which may affect Hatfield townspeople. We 
ask that any complaint or comment be forwarded to our office in writing and signed. This information will be kept 
confidential but it is necessary in order to conduct an investigation. 

On a yearly basis, the Board inspects and issues the following permits with their appropriate fee's: Commercial 
Haulers; Septic Haulers; Perc Test; Septic System Installations and Repairs; Well Installers; Common Victualler 
(food) and Lodging Licenses. 

The Board meets on the first and third Thursday of the month at 9:30 am in the Board of Health Office, Memorial 
Town Hall. Please feel free to stop by should you need our assistance. Our phone number is 247-0497 at the 
Memorial Town Hall.

LIBRARY 



To the Residents of Hatfield: 

The Trustees of the Hatfield Public Library are pleased to present to the townspeople this year's report 
outlining our successes in serving the community's library needs. 

Our Library Director, Pam Jacobson, has provided superb service to the community this year while completing 
her studies and obtaining her Masters in Library and Information Sciences from the University of Rhode Island. Ms. 
Jacobson's ability to serve the needs of adult and younger patrons, to work with budgets and town administration, to 
interact with state and regional community and library organizations, have earned nothing but praise from us, the 
Trustees. She is ably assisted by Josie Zgrodnik, Bernice Kellogg, and Evie Prucnal. 

Circulation continues to be high with just over 16,000 items circulated. More than 4,400 adult and 2,800 
children's visits to the library this year are recorded, accessing our collection of more than 24,000 items, which include 
56 periodical subscriptions. Queries for reference assistance totaled well over 200 while assistance in accessing the 
library system serviced by CWMARS continues to be in demand by patrons. 

We are pleased to announce that the Hatfield Public Library now provides computer access to subscription 
data bases, network CD-ROM, as well as public access to the internet, bringing us into the 21 st century as providers of 
not only print, but electronic, information. 

The Friends of Hatfield Library have again served the community well by offering assistance as volunteers to patrons, 
by continuing to raise funds for the library, and by their continued interest in and support of the library. Liaison 
between the Friends and the Trustees, Rita Prew, has been a devoted advocate for all. 

We are especially proud of our children's programs, totaling 59 this year, with over 700 children in attendance 
at story hours on Saturdays and during the summer. More than 300 children and 100 adults participated in the summer 
programs, while the special programs, over the year, included a minstrel, some performers form a Hip Hop Dance" 
program of inner city kids, a story teller for the :Open Books, Open Frontiers" series, and a Magician who performed 
during National Library Week, all bringing to our youngsters the importance, value, and joy of reading and literature. 
Activity kits for pre-schoolers, co-sponsored by the Community Partnership Grant of the Hampshire Educational 
Collaborative, have provided multi-media experiences for many young children. Ms. Jacobson works regularly with 
the school system as requested and library services are, as always, available to children from the elementary school 
during their lunch break. 

Grant money has enabled us to continue to put our collection on the CWMARS database which should, 
eventually, bring us online with the rest of the region, while memorial gifts, donations from patrons and friends, 
including generous donations from the Friends of the Hatfield Library and the Hatfield Book Club, have allowed us to 
add to our collection. 

Building and space needs continue to be a problem. The Trustees actively researched alternative opportunities 
for solving our space needs this year and continue to make new and or expanded space with handicap accessibility a 
priority for the future. Physical Plant needs have been improved with a new boiler system, which was a necessity and 
the addition of a new circulation desk, which greatly enhances the center of the library and was designed to be used 
either here or in new spaces as future needs are met. Updated electrical work and furniture needs have been made to 
enable us to bring computer access and better service to our patrons. 

A continuing problem for the Hatfield Public Library is the need for structural and maintenance needs of the 
Dickinson Memorial Hall, including roof work, expanded space needs, and handicap accessibility for all our patrons. 
We are committed to pursuing a solution for these needs with the assistance of the townspeople whom we serve. 



68 



The Hatfield public Library is pen five days or evenings a week, enabling patrons to access the newest in 
fiction, non-fiction, periodicals, and expand on-line services, and is staffed by dedicated, experienced staff people who 
are here to serve all our literary and information needs.

HATFIELD TRIAD PROGRAM 

To the Residents of Hatfield: 

The Hatfield TRIAD program completed its sixth year. TRIAD addresses quality of life issues for Hatfield's senior 
population such as crime prevention and safety in the home. Elders unfortunately are one of the most victimized 
portions of society. One of our goals is to instill a feeling of security in our older citizens. This goal is accomplished 
through the cooperation of the Council on Aging, Police Department and the senior citizens themselves. The seniors 
form a S.A.L.T. Council, which stands for Seniors And Lawmen Together. They work with the Council on Aging 
Director and the TRIAD Officer to identify and solve problems in the elder community. 

The Hatfield S.A.L.T. Council members include Mary Brennan, Ann Burda, Ellie Gillespie, Tony Gillespie, Marion 
Lapienski, Alice Maiewski, June May, Dick Mooney, Iris Sawin and Helen Sikorski. S.A.L.T. Council members Tony 
Gillespie and Dick Mooney are also on the Hampshire Franklin Steering Committee. S.A.L.T. Council member Art 
Belden passed away but his presence will always be felt by an appreciative TRIAD program in Hatfield. 

The Hatfield Police Department again applied for and received a Community Policing Grant from the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The money from the grant, in part, enabled the TRIAD Officer to do home 
visitations of elders at an earlier hour in the day when it is more convenient. This program has proven to be one of the 
more popular aspects of TRIAD and one I feel is very important. Citizens of the community must feel that their Police 
Department is accessible to them. 

The third annual Safety Awareness Night held in June at the Hatfield Lions Club Pavilion. There were many speakers 
and demonstrations of how to keep safe in the home. Personnel from the Fire Department demonstrated their new Jaws 
of Life which will be a lifesaver. Officers from the University of Massachusetts Police Department complete with 
horses and bicycles demonstrated how they use these tools for patrolling their campus. 

OTHER SERVICES OFFERED BY TRIAD 

HOME VISITATION PROGRAM: Visits to elders who live alone or are homebound are done on a regularly 
scheduled basis. The visits are important to let seniors know that someone will be looking in on them. The people that 
are visited enjoy having someone different with which to talk about any problems they might have. Being alone is a 
very difficult thing for anyone. 

HOME SECURITY CHECKS: The TRIAD Officer will come to the senior's home and does a survey with 
recommendations of ways to make the home a safer place. The survey goes a long way to improve peace of mind that 
the occupants are themselves safe. 

VIDEOTAPING OF HOMES: The TRIAD Officer videotapes homes and valuables within the home to be used in 
case of disasters for making insurance claims. The homeowner retains the tape in a safe place. 

EMERGENCY LIGHTS: These lights are screwed into an existing outside light and the bulb is screwed into it. 
When the switch is thrown once it works normally. If it is thrown twice it blinks on and off making the locating of 
your home easier for emergency personnel. 

69 



FILES OF LIFE: Files of Life are available to any Hatfield resident 60 or over free of charge. These files 
magnetically attach to the refrigerator door and contain key medical information in case of emergency. They have been 
valuable in the past and EMS personnel look for them immediately. 

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS BOOKLETS: These booklets were compiled by the Hatfield TRIAD to assist 
seniors in the event of a natural catastrophe. It instructs people where to go and who to call. 

"HELP ME" PERSONAL ALARMS: Carried on the person or kept handy these alarms emit a very, very loud noise 
when the pin is pulled which attracts attention to the person needing help. 

Any of the above products and services may be had by calling the Council on Aging Office at 247-9003. They are 
available free of charge to any Hatfield resident 60 and over. 

TRIAD NEWSLETTER: A newsletter with TRIAD information and home security tips is distributed along with the 
Council on Aging newsletter several times a year. It contains many interesting facts about what TRIAD is doing. 

TRIAD MEETINGS: S.A.L.T. Council meetings are held monthly downstairs in the Town Hall in the Senior Dining 
Room. They are usually held the third Tuesday of the month. The public is invited to attend and new people are always 
welcome. Call The Council on Aging Office for exact dates and times. 

At this time I would again like to thank Chief David Hurley for all his support and help since we began the program 
six years ago. I say the same thing every year but I feel that it bears repeating. Chief Hurley has remainedtotally 
committed to the Hatfield TRIAD program. I know I appreciate it as do the seniors that the program touches. This is 
also a good time to thank the S.A.L.T. Council for their work. They with each passing year, become more dedicated to 
our program and it is much appreciated. I also need to thank Council on Aging Director Jane Betsold for the tireless 
effort she gives. The work on TRIAD is far above and beyond what she has to do but she does it without complaint. 
Finally I would like to thank District Attorney Elizabeth Scheibel and her staff for their continuing support to the 
whole TRIAD concept. All one needs to do is ask for help and someone in District Attorney Scheibel' s office is there 
to help. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Sgt. Thomas Osley 
TRIAD Officer

handles all Emergency Services for our Town. I continue to be a member of The Board of 
Overseers, a position was I have held since the inception of the service back in 1994. We 
as Townspeople should remember that the dedicated employees of the Center, for they 
are there 7 days a week, 24 hours a day ready to dispatch Emergency Services to us 
should the event arise. My personal thanks to each and every employee for a job well 
done! 

The Massachusetts Sate Police continue to provide protection to our Town, and I for 
one am please that many of the Officers have chosen to reside within our Community. I 
wish also to express my thanks to these men and women who have assisted our Town 
Police Department in making our Town safe to live in, and raise our families. 

PROGRAMS 

D.A.R.E. 

This year the Town was the recipient of a grant in the amount of $7,000.00, from the 
Governor's Alliance Against Drugs. These funds are used to support various activities, 
under the direction of Sgt. Weeks. He continues to be the driving force behind the 
program, and loves every minute of it! Please refer to Sgt. Week's report for the details of 
the Program. This past year he conducted a Youth Summer day Camp too, so check out 
his report for this program also. I continue to firmly believe that these programs give the 
kids an opportunity to make educated choices to life's difficult decisions. We are realistic 
to know that these programs alone will not stop all kids in experimenting with Controlled 



71 



Substances. What we do know that if these programs save one, then every penny spent is 
worth every effort, and I am sure you would agree, especially it that child is yours. 

Community Policing 

This year the Town was the recipient of a grant of $15,200.00, from the Mass. 
Executive Office of Public Safety. These funds continue to support the TRIAD program, 
please refer to Sgt. Osley's report. Our feelings are to continue the expression of our 
appreciation to the elderly residents who have made this Town such a great place to live, 
and with these funds we are given the opportunity to express our thanks to them. I would 
be remiss if I neglected to express my sincere thanks to Jane Betsold, the Director of the 
Council on Aging and the S.A.L.T. (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) Council for 
all of their support and assistance. Without them this Program would not be such a 
success, and so fun to do! 

C.J.I.S. Data Transfer Project 

The Town was the recipient of a grant of $7,418.00, which was use for the 
replacement of the Criminal Justice Information System. This computer is used to 
process Firearm Licenses, and conduct investigations. The Town was required to spend 
$2,472.00, as a matching share of the Grant. These monies were used to train Officers in 
the use of the Computer, along the purchase supplies for the unit. 

WEB ADDRESS 

The Police Department is now "on line". The web address for the Department is: 
http//police.hatfield.ma.us . Officer Barstow has created, and maintains this site, which 
contains every thing you could think of pertaining to Police Services. My sincere thanks 
to Matt for making this site a reality. Please check our site, and take the time to complete 
the questionnaire's, by doing so it will help your Police Department deliver the service 
you want and need. 

Auxiliary Program 

The Police Department has begun and is being directed to Town Residents wishing to 
become involved in Law Enforcement. The Program has three Officers enrolled and 
provided assistance at this years- Annual Luminarium. Sgts. Osley and Weeks have 
developed the program and are empowered to ensure its' success. 

Regional Lockup 

The construction phase of this project is continuing and it is hoped for a speedy 
completion date. The reason for the Facility is to provide Communities, like Hatfield, a 
place to hold prisoners. I have personally been involved with this concept since 1984, and 
now "can see the light at the end of the tunnel." 

Training 

All Officers continue to complete all required training, under the direction of Sgt. 
Weeks. This training includes, but is not limited to the following, Defensive Tactics, 
Firearms, First responder, CPR, Radar, to name a few. 



72 



House Numbering 

Each and every residence/business are required by Town by-law to have a number 
affixed to the structure, which is visible from the street. Many of which continue to fail 
to comply with this requirement. I have contacted the Building Inspector, who is 
responsible for the enforcement for assistance. The lack of these numbers has caused 
serious delays in Emergency Services locating addresses. Please take the time and 
money to correct this problem, the life you save may be your own! ! 

In closing, I wish to thank all the carious Departments, Boards for their support 
and assistance this past year. I wish to also thank each and every Officer of this 
Department for their services in making this Town a "great place to live." Most of all I 
wish to express my sincere thanks to you the citizens of Hatfield for your continued 
support of your Police Department. 

Respectfully submitted, 
David M. Hurley

HISTORICAL COMMISSION 

To the Residents of Hatfield: 

Big news in Hatfield! Sophia Smith (1796-1870) was inducted into the Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, NY on 
October 7, 2000. What an honor! Representing our town at the event were Town Administrator, Bill Szych, his mother 
Mildred and daughter Sophie, and Historical Society President, Rita Prew. 

Authored by Bill Szych, in way of noting this auspicious occasion, the Board of Selectmen called October 6, 2000 a day 
of recognition by giving all town employees the day off from work. The induction was further recognized when Senator 
Stanley Rosenberg drew this important event to the attention of Governor Paul Cellucci and he declared in a Proclamation 
that October 7, 2000 would be SOPHIA SMITH DAY IN MASSACHUSETTS. 

To use the words of Governor Cellucci' s Proclamation: 

-Whereas: Sophia Smith was committed to furthering opportunities for women, providing the same opportunities that are 

available to men; and 

-Whereas: A large portion of Sophia Smith's will was left to help fulfill her vision of an educational institution designed 

for women that would rival those attended by men; and 

-Whereas: thus Smith College was created and continues today to serve as the largest undergraduate college for women in 

the United States; and 

-Whereas: In addition Sophia Smith's legacy continues with Smith Academy. . .in Hatfield, serving the community in 

which she lived... 

Earlier, on September 17 th , the Hatfield Historical Society celebrated the life of Hatfield's grand lady by leading a tour of 
Sophia Smith's houses, and her burial site in the Main Street Cemetery. The museum exhibited items connected with 
Sophia Smith. 

Hatfield schools declared December 4 th to be Sophia Smith Day. That morning, all grade levels had activities, which 
educated students of Sophia Smith's importance to Hatfield and the world. Historical Society and Commission members 
helped with the various educational activities. Then the students were dismissed at half day. December 4 th was selected 
because Smith Academy opened its doors to its first students on December 4 th 1872. 

We are happy to report that the restorations to the Billings Way Tobacco Barn are completed. This building, soon to be 
known as the Hatfield Farm Museum now has a concrete floor and a new electrical system. 

We have so many people to thank for helping to get work done: 

The Board of Selectmen for their cooperation and support 

Town Administrator, Bill Szych whose advice, approval and encouragement were so important 

DPW Director, Jim Reidy, his ready cooperation 

Highway Superintendent, Bill Young for scheduling his men as we needed the help 

Ed Lesko for spending 2-3 days at a crucial time in planning, advising, supervising and assisting with last minute 

preparations before the cement was poured 

Marion Baranowski of M&R Concrete for his valuable advice, and placing the concrete at a generous savings 

Stanley (Buster) Symanski of M&S Electric and his men for putting in the new electrical system with a generous 

discount on labor 

Bill Englehardt for framing the base of the barn where the concrete blocks had been removed 

Ambassador Robert J. Ryan and others for their generous donations, including especially the Hatfield Historical 

Society and the townspeople who voted to give us the money needed. 

Overseeing the whole project where Bob & Mary Lou Cutter, and Cory Bardwell. Bob with his experience in 
construction and Mr. Bardwell with his many talents including serving as clerk of the works on many jobs made them a 
perfect team. 

Through the summer we gathered together the farm tools and implements which had been stored for years in bams 
throughout the town and placed them in the future Farm Museum. Once people realized that we now had space for farm 
items, more donations came in. A large number of items came from the Peter Novak farm on Elm Street, and from Tom 
Smith's farm on Chestnut Street. All items have now been tagged and inventoried.

Helping with the moving and/or cleaning of the barn and collection, the repairs of items, and the beginning of setting up 
exhibits were these people: Alvin Rejniak, Richard Phaneuf, Richard Belden, Helen & Cory Bardwell, Mary Lou & Bob 
Cutter, George Ashley, Rita Prew, Pat Douglas, Ken Balise, Bill Parmeter, William Cichanowicz, Mike Bartlett, Alan 
Cutter, Bill & Andrew Szych, John Pease, Tom Mullins, and two summer town crew members, Joe Punska and Frank 
Lyman. 

In the spring we will again resume work and have asked the Fire Department members to set up an exhibit of their antique 
fire equipment. Our hope is to open the Hatfield Farm Museum in June 200 1 . 

The Elm Street Historic District has been submitted to the National Register of Historic Places. 

The Mill Historic District work has been completed and has been submitted to the Massachusetts Historical Commission 
for review. 

On July 25, we toured West Hatfield with our research expert, Bonnie Parsons from the Pioneer Valley Planning 
Commission to see if that could become a district. Accompanying her were Hatfield Historical Commissioners Martha 
Schurch and Mary Lou Cutter, Historical Society officers, Rita Prew and Cory Bardwell. Bob Cutter and Francis 
Englehardt grew up in West Hatfield and shared many stories with us. Accompanying us also was Monique Gagnon, 
Chairman of the Whately Historical Commission, and driving us in his own van was David Bell. Our appreciation to 
Dave Bell and all of the storytellers. 

During the summer and fall Frank Godek repaired the little church which appears at the Sophia Smith Park during the 
holiday season including the Hatfield Luminarium. Richard Dwight installed tiny lights and Tom Prew painted the 4'x9' 
building. In 1976 Eugene Proulx, originator of the Hatfield Luminarium, and Robert Sawicki designed the little church 
for a parade float that year. Since then the church has been part of each year's Luminarium. This is the first major 
perking up the little church has received. 

Thomas Travaglini of Colebrook, CT presented to Hatfield a 50 pound piece of a marble Civil War Monument. It reads: 
THESE DIED NOT IN VAIN, and the names of two Hatfield residents are inscribed: James H. Abbott, d. Baton Rouge, 
and Ebenezer C. Anderson, d. Spotsylvania. This stone is displayed in the Town Hall along with a case of Civil War 
items from the Hatfield Museum. 

This year's Preservation Awards went to two families who have improved their older important homes: 

1) E. Lary Grossman & Moira Brady 24 King Street 

2) Thomas & Joanne Petcin 23 Chestnut Street 

We wish to thank Martha Schurch for preparing the Preservation Awards and the accompanying photographs, which were 
awarded to these people. Congratulations for the fine work that was done. 

Carpenter ants continue to plague the ceiling the museum that is housed in the Dickinson Memorial Hall. We wish to 
thank Jane Scavotto, Library Trustee for having the exterminators come in, but it appears the job maybe larger than 
anticipated. 

On September 26 we were invited to appear before the Board of Selectmen to discuss our responsibilities as Historical 
Commissioners. Some of the duties we listed are locating more museum space, gathering information on the history of 
our town, helping to preserve historically important properties and encouraging others to do the same, helping other town 
departments upon request, keeping a watchful eye on the four Civil War cannons, Hatfield's archeological sites, the 
Bordon Baseline. . .a surveyor's mark, the Connecticut River, and the Pony Truss Iron Bridge on Prospect Court. We hope 
some day to do an archeological dig to locate the stockade, which surrounded the oldest part of Main Street during the 
1670s Indian raids. 



So much work was done by so many. Thank you everybody.

DRUG ABUSE RESISTANCE EDUCATION 

To the Residents of Hatfield: 

This year completed our eleventh year of the Hatfield D.A.R.E. Program in our schools. Each year seems to 
go by faster than the last. I guess time flies when you're having fun and fun we had this year. Five classes have now 
graduated from Smith Academy and my first D.A.R.E. class should now all be working and paying taxes. As long as 
they are paying into my retirement fund for me is all I care about now. 

In June we graduated thirty students from Breor Elementary School and then celebrated this with a party at the 
American Legion. As usual Betsy and Jim Tarr catered this event in their usual and exceptional way. Food good and 
the company even better. We paid trubute to last champions of our D.A.R.E. Bowling League. These champions are 
The Lucky Strikes. Team members include Steph Gondek, Kara Sikorski, Scott Jaworski and Haley Pedruczny. Once 
again it was a very competitive League with 1 8 out of 30 kids taking part every Saturday fornine weeks and then our 
Bowl-a-thon to help pay for the party at the Legion. This will probably be the last year of parties at the American 
Legion due to budget and fund raising capabilities. 

Also in June, Marit Bjerkadal was named as the representative of Hatfield at the State D.A.R.E. Graduation 
held in Boston. Officer Wendy Bardwell and a representative of the Whately D.A.R.E. Program accompanied us to 
Boston. The Executive Limousine Service of Hatfield graciously donated a limousine to transport us from Hatfield to 
the State House. While there Marit was presented a Certificate from State Representative Nagle for being the 
representative of Hatfield at this graduation. A fun time was had at the graduation and then onto the Hard Rock Cafe 
for lunch and then we visited the Hancock Building. 

Last year the Teen Center remained open Friday nights between the hours of 6 P.M. and 9 P.M. We also 
traveled to Interskate 91 a few times and will continue to try to do this as much as finances allow this. The Pittsfield 
Mets received a visit from us again this year and we retained the distinction of being the loudest group to visit the 
Mets. The Whale Watch was a pleasant trip this year. Ocean being nice and smooth and whales being plentiful. Most 
everyone had only one lunch this year. 

In August we had our first D.A.R.E. Summer Program. This was a tremendous success. We had 30 kids each 
week. The Program ran Monday through Friday from 8 A.M. to 4 P.M. It was difficult to tell who had more fun, the 
kids or the counselors. We did everything including miniature golf, roller-skating, rock climbing and bowling. I'm 
sorry to say that we were the last group to use the Pioneer Bowling Alleys due to the business being sold and the 
bowling alleys being shut down. It was a sad thing to see this coming to an end and will be missed by all. 

During the week we received visits from the UMASS horse and bike patrols, Greenfield and MSP canine 
corps. Finger print experts from Massachusetts State Police, MSP motorcycle division and the big hit helicopters from 
both the State Police and LifeFlight Ambulance. On Friday skydivers from Airborne Adventures jumped into the 
Pavilion to the delight of all. C & S Wholesale Distributors donated all the food to feed this army of energy. If all 
goes well this Summer Program will happen again this year. Funding from this Program comes from the Northwestern 
District Attorney's Officer and the Governors Alliance Against Drugs and we hope that the funding will be available 
again for 200 1 . 

We held our second annual Golf Tournament at the Northampton Country Club. This will be held again in 
200 1 and we are looking for all the participation we can get since this will again be our only fundraiser for the year. 
All programs are financially held together by this fundraiser and funds from the Governors Alliance Against Drugs and 
the Northwestern District Attorney's Office.

I look forward to a very promising 2001 with your kids. The privilege of working and spending time with 
your kids continue to be the bright times in my life and would not trade this time for anything in this world. I would 
like to thank the Chief of Police for allowing me to continue the D.A.R.E. Program and arranging my schedule so that 
I may spend time with your children. 

Finally, to all my past, present and future students. Be smart, think smart, activate brain before mouth or 
actions and remember that I will always be there for you as long as I'm around and even after I'm gone. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Gregory E. Weeks 
Hatfield D.A.R.E. Officer 



Ambulance Department 

The Ambulance department is once again busier than the last year. The E.M.T.s of Hatfield Ambulance have 
been tirelessly working to stay on top of law changes and medical updates. If you are ever in the need of our services, 
you can be sure that you are getting the best emergency medical care available from some of the states best providers. 
Each time the ambulance is paged, the E.M.T.s put their lives on hold, scrape the frost off of their cars, drive to the 
ambulance, and provide the best medical care and customer service skills that I know of. 

The Ambulance Department has been working with the Fire Department, during their drills, to provide 
synchronicity in emergencies of all kinds. The Fire Department's expertise in rescue skills has always been available to 
the Ambulance and has proven to be an asset to our community. Working well together can only better both 
departments. I would like to extend thanks to the Fire Department for all the hard work that they have done for and 
with us. 

The Hatfield Police Department is now carrying one of our automated external defibrillators (AED). Sgt. 
Weeks has been busy training the officers to use it. Early defibrillation is very important in saving lives of people in 
cardiac arrest. With the AED in an on duty police cruiser, early defibrillation could be delivered prior to the 
ambulance's arrival. I would like to thank the officers that are involved in providing this service for so willingly 
adding another duty to their jobs. 

We would like to welcome two new E.M.T.s, Joyce Arel and Kerry Gaughan, to the department. 

The following is a list of the town's Emergency Medical Technicians: 

Joyce Arel Douglas Baker Laurie Banas Jill Barrows 

James Crepeau Robert Englehardt Gregory Gagnon Kevin Garvey 

Kerry Gaughan Stephen Gaughan Timothy Jackewich Worth Noyes 

Cessie Pelis Jeffery Suriano Gregory Weeks Darryl Williams 

Please, make sure that you and your family are ready if an emergency presents itself. Be sure that your house 
number can easily be seen from the street. Also, keep an updated list of your medical conditions, medications, and 
allergies available to help us help you. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Gregory J. Gagnon 
Ambulance Manager

CABLE ADVISORY COMMISSION 

To the Residents of Hatfield: 

The Cable Advisory Committee (CAC) has been delegated, by the Board of Selectmen, the responsibility for 
administering Hatfield Community Access Television (HCTV) - cable channel 15. The HCTV station and studio are 
located at Smith Academy. The facilities are used by the school and are also available to the entire Hatfield 
community. The station manager is John Novak. 

During the past year, HCTV established itself as a major source of information about town government. HCTV 
provides live broadcasts of all meetings of the Board of Selectmen and then rebroadcasts the taped proceedings later in 
the week. All of the Town Meetings held in 2000 were taped and subsequently televised. Other important, televised 
events include School Committee meetings and meetings of the School Building Committee. HCTV also worked with 
the Master Planning Committee to create a video that was shown several times on channel 15. 

Almost all of the camera operators for televised public meetings are Smith Academy student volunteers. Operating the 
cameras requires time and skill. HCTV and the Town of Hatfield are indebted to these young citizens for the 
contribution they have made to community television: Robert Betsold, Daniel Englehardt, Joseph Hudock, Peter 
Jackewich, Steven Savard, William Shea, and Sophie Szych. 

The HCTV bulletin board shows daily at 7:00 am, 1 :00 pm, 6:00 pm, and 1 1 :00 pm. Each showing lasts for 30 minutes 
during which the bulletin board continuously repeats. All town residents may use the bulletin board to communicate 
issues of public, non-commercial interest. To put something on the bulletin board, a form must be filled out and 
submitted to HCTV. Forms are available at Memorial Town Hall, and there is a Cable TV mailbox at that same 
location. 

Station Manager John Novak has spent many hours organizing, re-wiring, and re-configuring the technical equipment 
at the station and studio. John recently installed HCTV's first, and only, videotape editing system. This new equipment 
enables the transformation of raw video and audio into a carefully created, finished product to be shown on HCTV 
channel 15. John will provide training for operating both a camera and the editing system to any interested resident.

WESTERN VALLEY WATER PROTECTION COMMITTEE 

To the Residents of Hatfield: 

The Western Valley Water Protection Committee (WVWPC) is a tri-town committee, which includes Whately, 
Northampton, and Hatfield. The Committee was initiated under a compact in 1991 between the three communities and the 
Pioneer Valley Planning Commission (PVPC) and the Franklin County Commissioners. The purpose of this regional 
compact is to foster joint and cooperative action concerning growth and development within these water supply areas to 
protect water quality. The WVWPC meets as needed to review development projects within the regional aquifer 
protection district and to make recommendations to the Planning Board relative to the proposed activities. 

This Committee is no longer active. However, its interests have been taken up by other committees that are conducting 
studies, acting on grant programs, and providing protections to the area, especially in areas tributary to the Mill River and 
the Hatfield Reservoir. Several protected rare species have been documented within the river corridor including three rare 
freshwater mussels, wood turtle, and rare floodplain plants. It is anticipated that additional protections will be established 
in this area. The Town encourages interested citizens to contact the Conservation Commission or Master Plan Committee, 
which currently provide the greatest ongoing review of programs protecting this region of the Town . 

Respectfully submitted, 
Paul G.Davis
